My Top 11 of 2011

I loved reading Nicola's post about this, and as she tagged everyone else I thought I'd do my own version!

My products are;

L-R; 1. Rimmel Sun Shimmer Wash-off Fake Tan, 2. MAC Mineralise Skin Finish Soft and Gentle, 3. MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC30, 4. NARS the Multiple in Orgasm, 5. Estee Lauder Idealist, 6. Bastiste Dry Shampoo in Diva, 7. MAC Brow Kit, 8. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Pop Life, 9. Urban Decay Eyeliner in Honey, 10. Tweezerman Tweezers, 11. MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick

1. Rimmel Sun Shimmer Wash Off Fake Tan
I love this, its absolutely brilliant for when I can't be bothered to do a full fake-tan as I just whack it on all over with a tanning mitt and I'm good to go! I have this in the "medium shimmer" shade, and I love how glittery it is! The only thing I would say is don't wear this on a night out if its raining, massive error!

2. MAC Mineralise Skin Finish Soft and Gentle
Still cannot get enough of this even after around three and a half years! My review on this is here

3. MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC30
I've tried and loved SO many foundations this year, such as Lancome Teint Idole Ultra, Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus to name a few, but I keep coming back to this foundation! Its not the usual dewy finish that I go for, but its such a good foundation in terms of coverage, longevity and finish that I just find myself consistently going back to it! Its true, the smell is not exactly nice and the bottle could be prettier, but its definitely a top product of 2011 for me.

4. NARS the Multiple in Orgasm
I only made my first NARS purchases this year (shocking I know!) and have literally never looked back. I love the multiple not for its many uses (I actually only use it on my cheekbones), but for its lovely shimmery finish and its packaging! Its easy to use, lasts a long time, and is generally just a favourite product of mine!

5. Estee Lauder Idealist
Again I've done an in-depth review of this which you can see below, but I really do love this product, and as you can see I'm fast running out of it and although I HATE forking out the £50+ for this product, I only have to do this every 6 months so for me, its worth it.

6. Bastiste Dry Shampoo in Diva
An obvious winner, we all know what it is and what it does, this is just my favourite "flavour"!

7. MAC Brow Kit
Again, I use this every day and I love that it is again buildable (definitely end up with a scousebrow sometimes though if I'm heavy handed!)

8. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Pop Life
When I bought this product from the website I wasn't sure how long it would last me, but I would say it doesn't last as long as a MAC lipstick does, but I love the colour SO much and the sheen it puts on my lips that it is a definite favourite.

 9. Urban Decay Eyeliner in Honey
I wear this on the inside corners of my eyes where my liquid liner ends, and I draw it out to around half way across my eye, and I always get compliments whilst wearing this! Again wear it daily and love love love it.

10. Tweezerman Tweezers
Nuff' said.

11. MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick
Another "cult" product, but I'm in love with the colour and it really does last all day if I wear Redd lip pencil underneath it! The only thing that annoys me about this is that I find it a bastard to put on, the Matte formulation on this seems to me to be partcicularly difficult to apply neatly to the lips as it is a really dry lipstick, but I've got around that now and have even been known to apply it, without a mirror, whilst driving! (full concentration on the road i promise!)

So there's my final 11, please link me to yours if you've done one, would love to read everyone else's! And as usual, any questions etc get in touch!

P.S Sorry for the shit photography and the place I took the photos, but I have DSLR camera and have no idea to use it so I'm trying to learn! Bear with me!
